Thousands Expected to Hold Hands at the Beach in Protest of Oil Drilling Saturday
Across California beaches tomorrow, groups of people are expected to gather in a peaceful demonstration against oil drilling. "This movement is not about politics; it is about protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and fishing industry," explains the Hands Across Sand website, which lists some 650 worldwide locations where events will be found.
In California, around one hundred events, mostly coastal, will take place. The Los Angeles area will be home to many of them with people coming together from Malibu through Orange County. One major spot is expected to be just north of the Santa Monica Pier. But no matter what location participants choose to attend everyone will join hands for 15 minutes starting at noon.
